The Blind Side (2009)

The Blind Side (2009) — Much better than I thought it would be from the trailers.  The advertisements made it look like Michael Oher was reduced to a supporting character in his own story, but thankfully the movie wasn’t like that.  Some of the acting was a little broad but Sandra Bullock was great and earned her Oscar nomination (though not really her likely win).  The film’s Best Picture nomination is kind of overkill. Like I said: solidly good and much better than I thought, but still not great. Sidenote: How come in these types of movie everyone has southern accents EXCEPT the people like the principal or the English teacher or the NCAA investigator [pseudo-villains, in other words]?
